Host Workshop about Free Trees for Neighborhoods February 1
(January 25, 2018)
Through the NeighborWoods program and in partnership with
Charlotte’s Housing and Neighborhood Services,
TreesCharlotte works with neighborhood groups in Charlotte
to plant trees, educate residents about proper tree care and
maintenance, and replenish the urban tree canopy.
TreesCharlotte requires participation in one Pre-Application
Workshop for neighborhoods to participate in the NeighborWoods program.
TreesCharlotte is hosting a Pre-Application Workshop on
Thursday, February 1, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm at Kennedy Middle
School (4000 Gallant Lane).
Trees clean our air, reduce storm water run-off, cool
our streets, reduce energy use, enhance wellness, increase
property values, and give us beauty.
NeighborWoods is a community tree planting initiative
aimed at keeping the tree canopy healthy and beautiful while
achieving Charlotte's goal of a 50 percent tree canopy
coverage by 2050. Neighborhoods interested in planting trees
in their community can apply to participate in this program
in the spring of each year. Selected neighborhoods receive
trees and planting supplies, and receive tree planting and
care training. Neighborhood residents work together to plant
trees in individual yards and common areas.
